The Jar Of Porter Chords And Lyrics
The Dubliners. [ Irish Folk Song] Sang by Ciaran Burke. The sheet music is also included in the key of D. Another fine song about drink, sure what else is there worth singing about ?.
[D]Toora loora loorala,
[A7]toora loora loo[D]rala
Toora loora loorala,
give the [A7]child a jar of [D]porter
[D]If you want your child to grow,
your [A7]child to grow, your [D]child to grow.
[D]If you want your child to grow
give [A7]him a jar of [D]porter. (sing)
When I was young and cradle cake,
No drop of milk now would I take.
Me father up and had his spake
"Give the child a drop of porter."
When I am dead and in my grave ,
I hope for me a prayer you'll say,
And if you're passing by that you'll
Throw in a jar of porter.
And when I reach the golden gates,
I hope I'll not have long to wait,
I'll call Saint Peter aside and say
"Brought you a jar of porter."
